The Ramp

The Ramp, just to the left of lunch rock. Start up some wide cracks on an orange face with excellent friction. Good pro down low, but as you move up and right onto a narrow sloper ledge the cracks thins down considerably. Follow a piton scarred crack with difficult gear placement. One nice pocket to drop a big nut or small hex is bomber, for the rest of it, bring your smallest cams. The crack has a small dihedral about 4' to the right. There are good hands and feet on the dihedral, staying true to the crack is harder than 5.7. At the top of the crack is an overhang with a piton around the corner to the right that gives solid protection for the overhang. The overhang looks cool but is not the crux. Follow the easier face up to rap rings.

Rick leading, just below the overhang. He is taking the harder line and staying true to the crack.
